Disappointment

What do we do with disappointment?
Do we give it to God?
I recently held an event and
no one showed up for it !
I was very disappointed!
I could have sworn off
offering anything more
for young adults, but,
I didn’t.
I looked at the situation
I gave it to God
and I resolved to
work in collaboration
with young adults. 
I will do it differently this time.
I am learning as I go along,
and I hope that all of you
when you have something
that disappoints you
You can give it to God
and learn to do it differently

Gathering to Reflect


We come together for different activities to pray together, to play together, to sit in silence before the altar. We are so busy in our lives that sometimes we just have to get away and let it go. I am inviting you to a time to get away and listen to God’s call in your life.

We will be having an evening of reflection here at the Motherhouse of the Sisters of St. Agnes.
Wednesday, September 14
6:30-8:30 pm 
320 County Road K
Fond du Lac, WI 54937

I know this is an advertisement and I don’t usually do that in this mode, however, we want to offer you a time to listen, pray and socialize and I couldn’t be remiss to invite you!!!

God’s Perfect 10


The world is all about the Olympics these days
but, as Catholic Christians we have
our own Olympics—the presence of God
in our lives….

In Psalm 139 we read:
Lord, you have probed me, you know me:
you know when I sit and when I stand
you understand my thoughts from afar…
you formed my inmost being;
you knit me in my mother’s womb.

God had us in God’s eyes before
we were born.
How awesome is that?
God strikes a perfect 10
throughout our lives.
And all we have to do is
Enjoy it.

The song goes like this:
“I have loved you with an everlasting love
I have loved you and you are mine.”

That, my friend, is a perfect 10!!!

What is this world coming to?


So much is happening right now
and people are asking
“what is this world coming to?”
Where is the respect and love?
Where is the need to do good
in the world?

In a world where so much
violence is happening
what can I do?

In my meager opinion,
I can start with love
with respect
with open eyes and
open heart.

It starts with me….
It starts with us….
It starts with a
Unified we….

Instead of asking
“what is this world coming to?”
Let us ask
“what in the world can I do?”

If you don’t stand for something . . .



The saying goes “If you don’t stand for something 
you will fall for anything.”

Today I was privileged to attend a kick-off rally
for the “Nuns on the Bus” tour.

I say “privileged" because I have
a car that would get me to Janesville,
I have money to put gas in the car,
I have friends to go with me and
encounter the greatness of this movement.

The participants of  “Nuns on the Bus” are going about
the Midwest and Eastern part of the U.S.
bringing awareness to the plight of
those less fortunate and in need.

The rally was amazing! We heard speakers,
and prayers for America.
We gathered with a group of like-minded
people that will hopefully keep
the movement alive until those in
Office hear and give notice.

So, I do stand for unity and I will not fall for anything…
